    All non-fighting scenes resemble all the bad bullshit I made in high school more more dated, but—even if that didn't become sorta charming by the end—who cares, because the action is so next-level brutal, clever, and complex that it making up an hour of this 100 minute movie feels like a crime against pleasure - give me more quick shelf ducking, give me more fights where one man ties another's hands together with both of their neck-ties without a single pause, give me more cheap warehouse brawls until the end of time.

    This movie ends with a title card informing the audience who won World War 2.

    ★★

    Pretty toothless imo, the kind of satire intended to feel incisive without actually offending those at the centre of its ostensible target. Content to passively mock the obliviousness of the rich without actually digging into the systemic abuses their existence allows beyond obvious acts of little dehumanisation. Or, at least, I don't think Bong really pulls off what's maybe supposed to be here, so lightly does he connect the cannibalisation of the working class to the rich family above them…
